Thurber's Thoughts: Public unions' symbiotic relationship with government
I am providing this link because of a specific part of Maggie Thurber's post, namely:
The problem is the elected officials who too often forget that they're supposed to be doing the exact same thing: getting the best deal for the taxpayers they represent. It's too easy to view the taxpayers as a never-ending source of revenue rather than the employers they actually are.
But the rest of her post is very good, too.
I'm not aware of anyone who ran for a school board position here in recent history seeking union endorsement . . . well, maybe one guy comes to mind . . .
